Gatwick Airport Parking Approved Operator Scheme Member
Gatwick Airport have introduced the Approved Operator Scheme effective from 10th July 2013. One of the main objectives of the scheme is to afford recognition to Meet and Greet operators that meet high standards of customer service and to ensure that passengers can identify good quality and legitimate operators.
Approved operators must have Buy with Confidence accreditation from Trading Standards and have the British Parking Association ParkMark award on all operational car parks meaning they have been risk assessed by the Police for security.
Park Mark Award
The Park Mark Award: Safer Parking SchemeTM is a registered trademark of the British Parking Association (BPA) and is awarded to car parks which achieve the required level of security, safety, management and maintenance. The aim of the scheme is to reduce crime, and the fear of crime in car park and parking facilities. It is vetted and approved by the Police and all Park Mark holders are regularly inspected to ensure they maintain the high standards.
